Gone are the days when parents can drop off their younger kids with the older ones and let them explore the parks during the summer. Disney has announced they are changing the minimum age requirement for kids entering the park alone. Before this change, kids as young as 8 years old could enter the parks as long as they were accompanied by another guest who was age 14 or older.
Starting March 23, 2013, all guests under the age of 14 now have to be accompanied by a guest who is 14 years of age or older.
This change includes admission all gate admission parks at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World. Florida parks included in the change are Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, both water parks - Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach - and DisneyQuest.
